Ignite Theatre Company is thrilled to announce 2018 premier ALL ages show for performers age 8- 88 (with a doctor’s note).  

 

When the draft selects rock star Conrad Birdie (Noah Drake), his fans are devastated, but none more than struggling songwriter Albert Peterson (Aaron Drake), whose song Birdie was just about to record. Albert's longtime girlfriend, Rosie (Krista Hartmann), pushes Albert to write a new tune that Birdie will perform on television to a randomly selected fan. The scheme works, with young Ohio teenager Kim McAfee (Gabby Anderson) declared the winner, but no one has counted on the jealous wrath of her boyfriend.

 

All shows begin at 7pm except the Sunday, September 13th matinee, which begins at 2pm.

Subterranean Books is excited to host the extraordinary author and illustrator, John Hendrix, and his newest book "The Faithful Spy". Interweaving handwritten text and art in his signature style, John Hendrix tells the fascinating story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his fight against the oppression of the German people during World War II. Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor and theologian who was shocked to watch the German church embrace Hitler's agenda of hatred. He spoke out against the Nazi party and led a breakaway church that rebelled against racist and nationalist beliefs of the Third Reich. Struggling with how his faith interacted with his ethics, Bonhoeffer eventually became convinced that Hitler and the Nazi Party needed to be stopped--and he was willing to sacrifice anything and everything to do so. 

 

John Hendrix is the illustrator of "Nurse, Soldier, Spy" and author/illustrator of "Shooting at the Stars", among others. He lives in St. Louis and teaches at Washington University.

The Observable Reading Series on October 1 will feature Jay Hopler and Dana Levin. Brought to you by St. Louis Poetry Center, the Observable Series welcomes poets to Dressel’s Public House (CWE). Reading begins at 7:30 p.m. in the upstairs loft of the restaurant. 

 

JAY HOPLER’s first book, Green Squall, was chosen for the Yale Younger Poets Series prize by Louise Gluck, who praised Hopler’s audacity, his “insouciance and bravura,” his witness as “a poet of being.”  

 

Hopler was born in San Juan, and educated at NYU, Johns Hopkins, and Iowa, and earned an American Studies PhD at Purdue. He has won a Lannan Grant, a Whiting Fellowship, and a Great Lakes Colleges Association New Writers award. Most recently, Hopler is a National Book Award Finalist for his second book, The Abridged History of Rainfall.  

 

 

DANA LEVIN’s new book of poetry is Banana Palace (Copper Canyon Press, 2016). Her first book, In the Surgical Theatre, was chosen by Louise Glück for the 1999 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize and went on to receive numerous honors, including the 2003 PEN/Osterweil Award.

Copper Canyon Press brought out her second book, Wedding Day, in 2005, and in 2011 Sky Burial, which The New Yorker called “utterly her own and utterly riveting.” Sky Burial was noted for 2011 year-end honors by The New Yorker, the San Francisco Chronicle, Coldfront, and Library Journal.

Levin’s poetry and essays have appeared in many anthologies and magazines, including Best American Poetry 2015, The New York Times, Los Angeles Review of Books, Boston Review, The American Poetry Review, Poetry, and The Paris Review. Her fellowships and awards include those from the National Endowment for the Arts, PEN, the Witter Bynner Foundation and the Library of Congress, as well as the Rona Jaffe, Whiting and Guggenheim Foundations. 

A teacher of poetry for over twenty years, Levin has served as the Russo Endowed Chair in Creative Writing at the University of New Mexico (2009–2011), as well as Faculty and Chair of the Creative Writing and Literature Department at College of Santa Fe (1998–2009) and Santa Fe University of Art and Design (2011–2015). She currently serves as Distinguished Writer in Residence at Maryville University in St. Louis.

Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis authors and Dorothy Press co-founders Martin Riker and Danielle Dutton, who will read from and sign their new books, "Samuel Johnson's Eternal Return" and "SPRAWL"!

 

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Samuel Johnson's Eternal Return" or "SPRAWL" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

 

When Samuel Johnson dies, he finds himself in the body of the man who killed him, unable to depart this world but determined, at least, to return to the son he left behind. Moving from body to body as each one expires, Samuel’s soul journeys on a comic quest through domestic America, inhabiting a series of lives as stymied, in their ways, as his own. A passive action-novel, a ghost story of the most unexpected sort, Martin Riker’s wholly original debut is about the ways experience is mediated, the unstoppable drive for human connection, and the struggle to be more fully alive in the world.

 

When Danielle Dutton’s "SPRAWL" first broke upon the world in 2010, critics likened it to collage, a poetics of the suburbs, a literal unpacking of et cetera. This updated edition, with a new afterword by Renee Gladman, reopens the space of its “fierce, careful composition”—as Bookforum wrote—“which changes the ordinary into the wonderful and odd.”
